ncurses 20140920 always installs terminfo db

I think there's an issue with the 20140920 snapshot regarding
The terminfo database is always installed, even when adding that
configure parameter. Going back to 20140913 snapshot and everything is
OK again. I had assumed it was something I'd done, but I've stripped
it of all other options, compilers, etc; with no luck.

This is my "simplified" test (broken as of ncurses-5.9-20140920):

./configure --prefix=/tmp/ncursestest --without-{debug,manpages,tests}
make && make install

Expected result:

(no mention of terminfo in `make install` output)

$ find /tmp/ncursestestA -ls | find-ls-totalsize
File count: 40
Total size (KB): 2296.40
Total size (MB): 2.24

Broken result:

/bin/sh ./run_tic.sh
** Building terminfo database, please wait...
Running tic to install /tmp/ncursestestB/share/terminfo ...

    You may see messages regarding extended capabilities, e.g., AX.
    These are extended terminal capabilities which are compiled
        tic -x
    If you have ncurses 4.2 applications, you should read the INSTALL
    document, and install the terminfo without the -x option.
